Participants will get an analysis of the practical effects of the recently enacted Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Another segment will offer attendees an in-depth look at the employment provisions in the Economic Stimulus Bill, including new COBRA provisions, the Franken Amendment that applies to federal contractors, and the McCaskill whistleblower law that applies to federal contractors receiving stimulus money.
